Hello, dear readers, this is your Voice of DOOM (aka Coauthor Anissa) here with an announcement. You see, it’s that special time of year again, the time when family and friends draw closer, when we fill ourselves with the spirit of hope and peace…
…and when everyone mobs the retail stores in a frantic feeding-frenzy to buy up gifts. Coincidentally, it’s also the time of year when companies get greedy and try to wring out every last drop of profit. In short, Lois is having the Opposite of Fun, and she’s pretty darn stressed. I am fortunate enough not to work retail, but I am facing some issues of my own. My six-person crew has lost two members in the last two months, and will likely lose two more in the new year. We are both under some serious pressure.
Which is why, reluctantly, we’ve decided to take a hiatus from our scheduled fic for the rest of the month. Don’t panic! We will still be working on both Across the Universe and Love & Other Headaches to get a little ahead of our deadline, and we will also be working on some holiday fic and some future fic. It’s just that we need to relax our writing schedule a bit to make room for things like holiday baking and tree-decorating and hiding in the work bathroom trying not to scream like banshees and assault our managers. Besides, you’ll be wrapped up in your own holiday preparations and may not even miss us.
Thank you so much for your patience. See you in January!
